A buddy of mine and I were climbing on the south-facing wall of the Green Valley Gap earlier today and we came across a couple of routes about which I haven't been able to find any info. They are located on the block directly west of "Beggars and Choosers" and "Perky's Playground", facing those routes. They are 25-30 feet tall, each have three bolts and they share the same set of fat rap hangers with quicklinks attached. The route on the left is a fun and really aesthetic line up a diagonal crack moving left, and then moves back to the right up a curved arete to the anchors; it felt maybe 5.8 or 5.9-, great holds throughout. The route on the right goes directly up the slightly-steeper-than-vertical face, and aside from a great starting jug and an okay horizontal seam 2/3 of the way up it's 25ish feet of V6ish bouldering with some pretty heinous clips and deck potential; 5.12+? We didn't lead this one, but tried it on TR and we were glad we did.

I'm curious to see if anyone has any more info on these routes. I didn't snag a photo, but I'll grab one when I'm down there again in a week or so if it would be helpful.

I know the routes you are talking about, and I dont know that I've seen them in any books or online. I'd say your estimation of the grades is correct.
